Artist of the Corridor Exhibition: A Journey of Inspiration

Date: 
March 3, 2017 - 5:00pm

Come view the latest Artist of the Corridor exhibition titled 39: A Journey of Inspiration, featuring landscape paintings and drawings by Lori Fuller. This exhibition is on view until March 3rd, 2017 at the Urbana City Building (400 S. Vine Street) and The Urbana Free Library (210 W. Green Street). 

An opening reception was held at the City Building lobby on Wednesday, December 14th at 5:00 p.m.  

Lori Fuller’s artworks depict the skies, creeks, mountains, and waterfalls found along the scenic trails of the natural landscape. She travels to many locations, looking for places that sustain her attention. Lori’s artwork conveys the ecstatic experience she has when she pauses and opens her eyes to the wonder that exists around us. She finds great inspiration in the everyday display of the natural world: the textures of the rocks, moving water, the sun shining through the trees, the mysterious shadows that linger on the ground and an unforeseen color palette.
